    It would be helpful to include the sizes in both inches and millimeters.

    Ohh that's a very good point. I will also add the inches equivalent. Thanks.

    Please understand, I am not too lazy to do the conversion myself...

    I have looked at them several times, but I always hesitate to purchase because I cannot judge their true size (even with the cm to mm/inch conversion data). If you can add the exact dimensions in cm, mm, and inches, you should have covered the basics (since the top edges are sometimes beveled, be sure to include the "working surface" measurement too).

    There was another fellow on eBay who was using Adobe Photoshop of Illustrator to add in dimension lines so that you could see the size from every angle. This was very helpful and clever...

    I am also a bit concerned that the base(s) might be a bit "beat up" in the post... nothing worse than a lovely base with dings and dents (unless it is a lovely figured with a smashed nose).

    Also, don't forget the 90mm scale... I work with 70mm-90mm pieces, and it is getting tough to find nice bases for 90mm mounted kits.

    Very good points my friend. I will make sure in my next listings to include the dimensions in inches too and indicate that they are for the working area.

    Regarding the shipping of my bases, so far I had 0 complains and I have shipped all over the world. I wrap my bases with several layers of bubble wrap, ensuring that they will arrive safe to the customer.

    Finally, about larger scales, I'm trying to find a dimension that would satisfy most of the larger scale modellers, so I can mass produce it. It's really hard for me to change dimesions very often. (so what's your suggestion? :) )

    My best suggestion would be to measure several 90mm horses for mounted bases (better manufacturers such as Pegaso, Poste Miliatire, etc.) and use them as a baseline. I would guess a base that is somewhere between 4 and 6 inches long and 3 to 4 inches wide (perhaps 2 to three inches tall) as a "standard" size for a mounted kit. The extra room around the horse will allow for easier handling without damaging swords, lances, etc. that might be protruding.

    Just my $0.02...

    I can assure anyone who may be concerned about packaging that I've bought bases from Xenofon before and I have always received them in excellent condition due to the excellent bubble wrap packaging....and that's after travelling half way around the world.
